Music Therapy

Music therapy is the skillful use of music and musical elements by an accredited music therapist to promote, maintain, and restore mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual health. Music has nonverbal, creative, structural, and emotional qualities. These are used in the therapeutic relationship to facilitate contact, interaction, self-awareness, learning, self-expression, communication, and personal development.

Our Mission

The Music Therapy Association of Ontario (MTAO) serves as a unifying body for Music Therapists: promoting, developing, and supporting the profession of Music Therapy in the province of Ontario.
